The Yoranian also known as the Yorkie-Pom or Yorkie Pomeranian mix, is a designer dog breed that is a cross between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Pomeranian. The breed is relatively new and the history of the Yoranian is not well-documented. However, it is believed that the breed was first created in the United States during the late 20th century, as a result of the growing popularity of designer dog breeds.
The Yorkshire Terrier and Pomeranian are both small breeds of dogs, and they share some similarities in terms of their personalities and exercise needs. The Yoranian is a small dog with a playful and friendly personality, and it is known for its loyalty and affection toward its owners.
Due to being a hybrid, their characteristics can vary, depending on the dominant traits inherited from their parents. They can be either more similar to Pomeranians or Yorkies. The breed is not recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) or other major kennel clubs, as it is considered a designer breed. However, it is recognized by some designer dog clubs and organizations.
Temperament and Personality
The Yoranian pup is among the most graceful dogs with a charismatic persona that not only makes it readily strike a companionship with family members but also makes it endearing to one and all. Since a Yoranian always prefers to be in the company of humans, it tends to become nasty if periodically left alone for a long duration.
The Porkie dog being a cross has inherited some character traits from both the Yorkshire and Pomeranian purebreds. For instance, it has acquired its domineering or overprotective quality from Pomeranian. This attribute makes the Yoranian fiercely protective about the family that has adopted it. On the other hand, its terrier lineage makes it wary of strangers and intruders. The Yorkie Pom doesn’t feel threatened or discouraged by its puniness and doesn’t shy away from barking at other dogs or showing aggression to safeguard its territory.
